Spinning 101 at Make One!


My first ever bit of spinning!

You might remember I purchased the spindle and yarn as part of a "Learn to Spin Kit" from The Bellwether in May. But even careful study of Amelia's well written book that came in the kit, and this excellent video by Megan LaCore that I found in an internet search still left me with more questions than answers - and more thumbs than I had before I began!

Celebrating Midsummer - Margit's Story


Open! Open! Open!

Please! Please! Please!

All the demanding and pleading I have done these past few days have been to no avail. This little pea flower refuses to open in time for Midsummer. It is probably waiting for something called sunshine!

I have a whole garden bursting with blossoms - why do I care so much about my sweet peas?
